Embodied Recovery: A New Approach to Trauma + Addiction

Matt Kay shares his profound journey from a life entangled in addiction and criminality to finding healing through addressing his trauma. He delves into how his personal experiences of heroin addiction and repeated incarcerations were deeply intertwined with unaddressed trauma.

Matt’s talk emphasizes the importance of recognizing trauma’s role in the development of addiction and self-identity. He advocates for an embodied approach to treatment, drawing from his own transformative experience in somatic work and healing. His story is not just one of personal triumph but a call to action for a fundamental shift in how addiction and trauma are treated.
